Primary Testimonials

“I currently have two sons in Grade 1 and JK. As we live in Burlington, we had considered on several occasions moving the children to a school closer to home, although I cannot imagine not allowing our younger children to have the same wonderful school experience that my Gr. 8 daughter has enjoyed, and giving them the benefit of the outstanding teachers that we have had the pleasure of working with over the past ten years.”
“I just wanted to send an email to thank you so much for a fantastic year as my son’s teacher. You absolutely brought out the best in him and it is obvious that your classroom allows the kids to feel safe and to take a few more risks. I had always heard you were one of the best teachers at GB and now I know that for sure. We have been blessed with amazing teachers over the past 8 years that we have been at Glenburnie, who truly enjoy their work and it shows! Thanks for your open door approach and sharing your own parenting insights…..have a great summer!“
“I think the Acts of Kindness program is a great way to motivate our children. Even though they all have good hearts and want to be nice to others, they are often too shy to take the steps to actually do nice things for the people around them. I would like to share an act of kindness that my daughter did for me since you began this program. I was not feeling well and was resting on the sofa after dinner. My daughter ran upstairs to retrieve her favourite blanket and quietly put it on me, trying not to wake me. I was very touched. Thank you for your efforts to bring out the goodness in our children.”
“Thank you for your efforts to bring out the goodness in our children.”
“I wanted to compliment you on the idea of giving homemade gifts for this year’s Secret Santa activity. I think it’s a fantastic idea and allows the children to be creative and avoid materialism at the same time. I think they experience more enjoyment from their creation, than they would with a purchased item. I also liked your idea of a Scholastic gift certificate to encourage reading.”

“Thank you so much for your email about our son. It is really so nice to hear such positive feedback! He was thrilled that you sent such a nice note, too! He loves ‘Mathletics’ – what a great learning tool! He plays it for about an hour each night and it is obviously helping.”
“Thank you so much for your email about our son. It is really so nice to hear such positive feedback!”
“Thank you for checking on my daughter today. She was very sad, but when I heard that she had talked to you, I was encouraged. She adores you and I’m glad she could come to you. It’s nice that she feels safe. Thank you for everything you are doing for our children. Your kindness will have a lasting impact.”
“Your kindness will have a lasting impact.”
“I just wanted to say thank you for the lovely piece of work you had the class do on themselves, their family, and friends. It was really very, very sweet and I have to say that I really enjoyed looking through this piece of work with my daughter. Thanks again.”
“I have to say that I really enjoyed looking through this piece of work with my daughter. Thanks again.”
“Rarely, have I encountered such learned passion and vision for the 360 degree education of our children. My son is truly fortunate to be attending your school and experience the life skills being taught that few in their working lives have the privilege of experiencing. Needless to say, I was very impressed by your carpe momentum approach to discussing his future potential and sharing your unique, valuable vision with me.”

“On this last day of school for my children at Glenburnie, I wanted to take a moment to thank you. You have been the single most memorable and impactful element of both our children’s stay and education at Glenburnie. I believe that most people remember one special teacher from their early years (I know I do), and for both of my children, you will be that teacher that they will never forget. “
“You will be that teacher that they will never forget.”
“I wanted to say how pleased we are with our son’s Grade 2 teacher. I believe that she is a wonderful addition to the excellent Glenburnie staff. Our son has had a remarkable first week at school. He is highly motivated, excited to get to school each day, and reported the best thing that happened to him yesterday was his Phonics class! He has enjoyed introducing one of the new students to the routines and to his friends at school. I think that our son is responding very well to his teacher’s enthusiastic, encouraging, fun but firm personality.”

“Our son’s Grade 3 teacher not only is always smiling and making parents feel comfortable, but has an amazing way of making each child in her class feel special. I knew it was going to be a good school year when, in the first week of school, my shy son began asking if he could take his teacher an apple every day…..and he would reject each apple I gave him until it was red enough and shiny enough to be acceptable to give to his teacher. Time and time again, she has gone out of her way to let us know how our son is doing, always with words of encouragement and praise that has increased our son’s confidence. She supports her students both in class and in their interests outside of school. The personal touch she has added to every aspect of her job with our son and all his classmates has simply been phenomenal. She is truly that special teacher one can look back on in adulthood as having “made a difference” that every child deserves at least once. Thank you for continuing to hire such wonderful teachers who make such a difference in our children’s lives. It is what makes Glenburnie shine above all the other schools! “

“I’m sending a note to express that I am thrilled with my choice to send my children to Glenburnie. My son is in Grade 1 and he is adjusting well. My four year old daughter is on the wait list for SK. I originally planned to start her off in Grade 1, but I am so pleased with all the strategies for learning that my son is exposed to that I want to get my daughter out of Montessori preschool and into Glenburnie as soon as possible. “
